Q: Are PRP results permanent?
A: How Long Does PRP Last
I cannot opine if PRP will be of benefit to you absent a complete workup. Every effective treatment for hair loss, including PRP, must be maintained or the benefits will be lost in a few months. Generally PRP maintains results for 6-9 months, then requires re-treatment.

Q: PRP and Vampirefacelift?
A: PRP for Hair Loss vs Vampire Facelift
The PRP is the same for either procedure. For hair loss, the PRP is usually injected directly into the scalp with small needles. This can be the same for the Vampire facelift but many also use Micro-needling, an electric instrument that has tiny needles that puncture the skin thousands of time per second with the PRP laying on top of the skin. Like tenderizing a steak. Some use a derma-roller as well. It takes about 3 months for either procedure to show results. Some hair loss doctors will do both procedures at the same appointment, one after the other. The Vampire facelift is trademarked so legally unless the practitioner has a release from the owner, it is typically called something else - like PRP Face Lift (even though it is not actually a lift either). Patients report excellent satisfaction. Wrinkles disappear and it is more natural than Botox. Procedure must be repeated periodically to maintain results. There are many videos of this procedure.

Q: I've had a lot of hair loss and thinning out. I'm only 25 - it really bothers me
A: PRP at age 25?
PRP Hair Restoration is suitable for both men and women. It is a state of the art, non-surgical, totally natural, alternative medical procedure used for the treatment of hair loss or hair thinning, particularly androgenetic alopecia. PRP is a highly effective but not infallible treatment; its effectiveness appears to be reduced the longer the hair loss has been present, and hence is very appropriate for young people. It’s efficacy in other hair thinning diagnoses is less well established. One should also investigate other options, such as Minoxidil (5%) and LLLT. Finasteride is not recommended in young men because of adverse sexual side-effects.

Q: PRP for hair; will it help me stop my hair loss?
A: Hair Loss In Texas
Many folks experience hair loss when they relocate; it is clearly something in the water in some locations. You can either opt for a hair workup or relocate. If the bottled water is effective, I think you have your answer. I would not recommend PRP without a clear idea of what is going on. If it is the water, your hair should come back.

Q: Can I repeat PRP in 15 days?
A: How Often Can I Receive PRP?
There is no absolute protocol. Some doctors recommend one injection and others recommend up to 5. I generally recommend 3 injections 6 weeks apart with a booster every 6 months. I see no rationale basis for having a treatment 3 weeks apart, although it will certainly do no harm. If it makes you feel better, it's your call.

Q: Why did my hairs starts falling out after PRP process?
A: PRP and Shedding
Shedding does not typically occur with PRP. Either you are being overly concerned about seeing natural hair loss or some other reason may be at play. It requires a minimum of 3-4 months for PRP to have any effect on re-growing hair so patience is required. At the same time you can take Minoxidil (I use Formula 82 in my practice), as well as LLLT. I reserve Finasteride for males over 50 because of its side effects on libido..

Q: 37 year old male. I lost more than 50% of my original hair at the middle and front. Is PRP treatment advisable for me? (Photo)
A: 50% hair loss
Your treatment options depend on your diagnosis and how long the hair loss has been on-going. The longer it has been lost, the more difficult it is to treat. PRP is a fine option for androgenic alopecia but so are Minoxidil, Propecia, and LLLT. Bald areas are very difficult to treat. Do not look for immediate results. This requires a long-term effort.

Q: Can PRP cause cancer?
A: PRP and Risks
Of all of the clinical treatments for hair loss, PRP is uniquely the safest as it is derived from your own blood and there is nothing in your blood that causes cancer. It is hypothetically possible if you have circulating cancer cells in your blood that the PRP could contain them, but I have not heard of any reports of this and PRP is extensively used in many areas of medicine besides treating androgenetic alopecia. Tens of thousands of patients have received PRP with any allergic or other negative effects.

Q: Had PRP for hair loss and nurse told me to take ibuprofen. Now I know this can negate the effects of the PRP. What should I do?
A: PRP and Pain Medication
Aspirin, ibuprofen, and naproxen are in a drug class called NSAIDS (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs). They reduce pain, reduce fever, and in higher does, have anti-inflammatory effects. They also have anti-clotting actions, meaning that minor bleeding may occur at the PRP injection sites. The effect of this minor bleeding may result in pain in the injected areas. While the pain may be bothersome, unless the bleeding were considerable, I am not aware of any evidence that it would have an adverse impact on the treatment itself.

Q: Is PRP for hair loss by masturbation effective?
A: Masturbation and Hair Loss
Seriously? Who told you such a thing? It's totally normal to masturbate (touch yourself for sexual pleasure) whether you're sexually active with other people or not. Masturbation even has health benefits, like reducing stress. It definitely does not cause hair loss.

As for using PRP, absent knowing your diagnosis there is no way to know what course of action you should follow. So find yourself a dermatologist and get a work-up. Knowledge is power.
